Islam.com Community is rumnning on phpBB software.
which Gives us following facilities......
1. SEND PRIVATE MESSAGES
Earlier on Islam.com, when someone need some personal assistance then he/she has to ask for the email address of the answerer to chat privately. While providing email address publicly, there are the chances that it will be captured by someone and may be used for creating problem/anxiety to the email addressee. But now no need for email, Just chat privately through sending messages to each others by SEND PRIVATE MESSAGES feature.
Note- 1 If anyone send offensive/abusive/spam etc to anyone then he/she can report the private messages by clicking the EXCLAMATION type sign/button ! , which is just above the message in between Delete and Reply button (Right top corner of message area).
THE MESSAGE(s) WILL THEN BE CHECKED BY ONE OF THE MODERATOR OR ADMINISTRATOR, AND IF FOUND INAPPROPRIATE THEN THE SENDER MAY BE WARNED FIRST, OR MAY BE BANNED.
Note-2 If you are irritated by someone messages, then you can add rule that the MESSAGES from the Specified sender will be deleted/reported automatically by the software.
2. ADD FRIENDS AND FOES
If you want someone's Posts, Messages etc to be shown to you easily then you can add him/her as a friend which will be shown to your friend list to contact easily.
If you don't want to see anyone's post then you can add him as a foe. His/ Her Posts will not be shown to you at first visit but you can see his/her post by clicking show posts.
